Members going with the A.B. Davis Fellowships to the Fruitcake Factory should be at the church Wednesday by 7:30 am.

Surviving the Holidays – The holiday season can be a challenging time for individuals who’ve experienced loss of a relationship, family member, separation or divorce. During this time there is a lot of focus on family, social events, yearly traditions, expectations and “cheer” the emotions scan blindside you. There is an opportunity to lessen the emotional impact by knowing what to expect and being prepared.  “Surviving the Holidays” is here to help. We invite you to join us for this one-time session Thursday, November 15th, 7:00-9:00 pm, at the Poplar House. For information, contact Paul or Christine Stewart (919-639-9683) or Sonia Kearney (919-521-1834).

Toy Drive – It’s that time again where we can share the love of GOD with the Methodist Children Home. We are collecting unwrapped toys for orphaned children from ages 3 to 16.  We will collect the toys in the large boxes in the front and back of the church from November 11th – December 16th. The toy drive was a great success last year, and we pray that GOD would place on your hearts to do even better this Christmas season! Please contact Ronzell Dunn (919-961-5685) or Deacon Anthony Chavis for any questions and information.

Church Conference will be Thursday, November 29th, 7:00 pm.
